Useful Information

Autumn and Spring are the Best time of the year for Pike peak trek. The trek is also doable during winter and monsoon season. However, the unfavorable weather and temperature of the Everest region during winter and monsoon season can become a barrier during the trek. So the choice is really yours whether you want a challenging and demanding trekking experience during winter and monsoon or a comfortable trekking experience during autumn and spring season.

Autumn that falls in the month of September, October, and November has always been the priority when it comes to trekking. Autumn is the season of festivals in Nepal and time for celebration.
